SUMMER’S arrived and sunny Blackpool is getting ready to rock in style . . .
Fylde Coast Disability Awareness have organised a spectacular ‘Labels Disable’ weekend of inclusive activities, performances and displays at the prestigious Winter Gardens.
The event, taking place on July 28-29, will include ‘Disability Rocks the Fylde’ with performances from many local acts and celebrities including Martin Finn (Autistic Superstars BBC3), Rob Eagle (Britain’s Got Talent 2011) ‘Father and Son’ (Britain’s Got Talent 2010), and Graham and James Edington, who both beat cancer.
Tina Mulgrew said: “We will be highlighting the ability in ‘disability’ and are inviting inclusive sports and performing arts groups to show the community what can be achieved.
“Performers already signed up include: Urban Dance Project, Living Well Taekwondo, Carleton Crossing, Scott Slattery (Michael Buble tribute) and a dance group from A.L.S (Activity & Leisure Solutions) which provides leisure activities and support for disabled children and their siblings.
On the opening day a variety of voluntary organisations and businesses will be promoting their services that help people with their independence.
And on the Sunday there will be Fylde Family Fun Day with a craft, arts and gifts fair.
